Being aware of the import permits, quarantine permits, restrictions and treatments on your goods before you import can save you a lot of time and money.
Before you import goods, you should find out whether they are subject to mandatory safety or information standards.
Some goods may carry special restrictions or may even be prohibited from being imported. If your goods contain industrial chemicals like cosmetics, solvents, adhesives, plastics, inks, printing and photocopying chemicals, paints, household cleaning products and toiletries, they will require additional registration.
Customs will also need to clear your goods on import. You will need to know what permits, duties and import regulations apply.
If your goods also fall under quarantine regulations, the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) will need to inspect and possibly treat them.
